1. Bigfoot

Bigfoot, also known as the Sasquatch, is probably the world's best-known cryptid. This large, hairy, ape-like creature has been spotted throughout North America, but the Pacific Northwest, in particular, is a hot spot for sightings. Numerous videos and photographs of this cryptid are available, but some have been proven to be hoaxes and others may be misidentifications of other animals. Some believe that people may be misidentifying bears or other wildlife, or that the sightings are a result of escaped zoo animals roaming the countryside.
